Whilst we’re on Buxton International Festival loveliness, I see they’re opening with Sondheim’s A Little Night Music. A tantalising proposition. If you’re not a Sondheim fan this will be lost on you, and you’re dead to me and a result. But dear God Buxton, what a fabulous treat to open your festival with. Tickets.
